Kelley Proxmire Interior Design

Kelley Proxmire’s daughter, Brocky, sent along a message and some photos that I think you’ll enjoy. (Notice that these walls are black. Isn’t this stunning?)

“My mom loves your blog and thought it was so nice of you to include her in your March addition by mentioning her sun room. Well, she recently finished a room that is being featured in a Spring show house sponsored by the Washington Design Center and Home and Design Magazine. She wanted me to send you some pictures of the room for you to share on Decor8. I hope you enjoy them!” – Brocky Proxmire.

Thank you so much Kelley and Brocky, what a nice surprise to hear from you. The dramatic black walls are stunning, it’s refreshing to see a crisp, bold bedroom in black and white with red as an accent, yet it doesn’t at all look harsh, dated, or dark. Quite the opposite really, the black walls are fresh, inviting, and positive because Kelley kept the floor and ceiling light – the key to pulling off solid black walls. Perfect!

    so amazing i LOVE the dark walls. I currently have dark walls in my master bedroom…and it always looks so clean and sharp. White walls are great but after awhile they can look dirty.

    Very graphic result – and every detail so well thought out. The black walls are an amazing idea and so hard to do right. Kelley pulls it through magnificently.

    love how the area around the bed reverses – white wall with black drapes.

    i HEART this in a huge way!! I’ve actually been debating between painting my office — which is by the front door of my house & has french doors, so it can’t be hidden — a dark chocolate brown (safe) or a daring, stunning black to offset my white furniture.

    This is totally pushing me over the edge…now I’ll never be able to forgive myself if I don’t try to pull off the black!

    Thanks for the inspiration!
